January has been hot! Phew. Tabitha & Matt had a 40+ day complete with a change that bought cool winds and rain in the afternoon. I did preparation photos at Tabitha’s place and Sarah covered Matt’s preparations before heading to the ceremony at the school chapel of St Ignatius’ College, Riverview. It’s a beautiful place and blessedly the chapel had air-conditioning.
The ceremony was lovely and ended with some beautiful singing by a friend of Tabitha & Matt’s. We did a range of shots with the bridal party at Riverview just before the front hit. We then headed to Curl Curl and Freshwater but it was rather windy and we had to pause for a rain break at Freshwater. We decided to do a quick stop at Clontarf Beach and the shots looked fantastic with the wind tearing across the sand.
The wedding reception was at Orso on the Spit – it’s a great venue and I love taking photos here. The band for the night was Slide McBride – hands down the best wedding band around with a cool and quirky range of songs (and costumes). It was a great night and the first dance ended with a spectacular spin! Make up was by Sania at So Sensational. Congrats guys!
